This may sound like a stupid question but I was wondering...

Why if LED's are brighter than standard bulbs are they not made into headlights?

who said LED's are brighter? Usually LED casings are molded so that they're more intense but on average, total outputted light is significantly less than a filament bulb, let alone a HID :)

Hyundai HCD-8 concept has LED's as headlights.


i doubt they would be very good as headlights, u'd need a lot, and onyl thing they're good for is spreading the light better, not really for light output.

alot of concept cars play with the idea of led headlights. i remeber the mayback was supposed to go into production with 10 led headlights that adjust to the road as you drive. i would love to see this happen

LEDs are bright, but I don't think their projected distance is very good. Take a look at led flashlights. It takes 4 just to get light out of it. For an automotive application, it'll take many more.
